The marketing plan is a document where we find an analysis of the situation of the company, the objectives to be achieved, the strategies to be followed and the planning to carry them out.
It is the guide that guides the company when deciding the steps to be taken at all times. This document usually has one year of validity, since it is convenient to review it annually and renew it. We will need to develop new objectives, re-investigate and evaluate the market and the competition, our target, what we have achieved and what we have not. With all this, we will be able to re-propose a new plan that adapts to the new reality.
